  • Textfile.ReadtoString adds strange chars in front of UTF8 file

    Hi. In the past I used UTF8 for Textfiles but today I noticed that the action adds strange chars in front of the string which are not shown in notepad or notepad++ on Windows 10.

    Output: "Textfilecontents"

    I downloaded the file with HTTP.Download as type Text and when I change the file to ANSI it seems to work without the strange chars in front. Did this change with Windows 10? I always had to use UTF8 to keep some special chars intact.

    If your changing the string in ams that might be why, you might have to use ulrichs plugin, far as I know AMS does not support UTF8 by default so it depends on if you was making ams change the file, what file is it I can also test in if you like I am on 10.

    if you like make a wee demo and I test it for you.

      Thanks, it seems to work with ANSI now. But I just loaded the Textfile into a string to use for File.OpenURL to be able to update the link without making a new version of the app. When I used chars like "ä ß ü ö" in the past they were "broken" when not in UTF8 and I could load them without any problems in AMS. But I will try a few things later and see what happens.

        The weird characters you're seeing are the BOM bytes. Read more...
